"worst place I have ever lived"

Proposch street is a primary department of housing street, along with the surrounding streets of Delray and Shirley streets in Oakey.
This sets the tone for the whole suburb and usually takes anything from 6 months to 2 years to sell a house in Oakey in general.
Local agents & their families either own or have on their rent roll the majority of the properties and this tends to give a false impression of the suburb.
Oakey was the most unwelcoming of towns in the fact that if you are not born there or live in a department of housing home then the people do not tend to speak to you.
Very closed minded and my best suggestion is to talk with the local police station and courthouse before even considering buying or moving into this town.
Personally it was the worst place I have ever lived in. Whilst there are facilities, you can wait 3 weeks to get a doctors appointment and if going to the local Oakey hospital, expect a min 3 hour wait to get medical attention when there is nobody else waiting!
Too much unemployed youth and people never tend to leave the town which I found odd as the town of Toowoomba is just 25 mins drive away.
In summary...Buyer beware and do your research & Talk to the Local Police before considering buying!

Tuttifrutti I have lived here most of my life & for the majority of that time....I have loved living in Oakey.
I will agree with you that the Proposch/Shirley/Delray Sts do have a lot of department of houses, and even though I don't live in that area, very good friends of ours live in Hass St which is nearby, and they love living there.
Like anywhere else, there can be some problems, but from what you have scorchingly posted about Oakey is not how I, or the majority of others, have found it.....maybe it says something that your statment of 'people never leave the town' is because we love living here!! Maybe it could have been some of your doing, that you didn't have a good experience??!!
I know of many people who have shifted here from interstate, Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, etc, etc at there own free will, who love the town & are retiring here.....and these are very respectable people who have been made to feel more than welcome in our town.
You have stated that Oakey is 'very close minded', but I in turn suggest that it is you who was/is close minded......a shame that you missed out on everything good that Oakey has to offer....but it was your loss, not ours.
Hope you have better luck in your current living situation.
